GULF SHORES, Ala. (WALA) - Beach conditions on Friday, August 23 showed signs of a tropical wave in the Gulf of Mexico.
The beach was quiet with cloudy and windy conditions as the summer season closes near the Labor Day weekend.
The tropical wave in the Gulf did not affect very much except for the people on the beach. Not many were found in sight, but that did not stop the seagulls from enjoying the wind. They were joined by a handful of diehard beach-goers: Christine Lewis and Lauren Palmer.
"We were just hoping that it was going to be kind of sunny but it looks like it's set in, but we don't care. We are just coming here to boogie board," Lewis said.
"Exactly. We're just coming to boogie board and the waves are better when it's raining," said Christine.
"Yeah, we saw the waves and were excited," Palmer said.
Alexandra Chevallier did not care about the wind and the rain. It was the beach she was impressed with.
"Oh my gosh, one thing I love is that it look like pure white sand. In California, it's dirty," Chevallier said.
For first time beach-goers Abbi and Samuel, seeing the waves was a thrill.
"Well, it's really cool. I like the waves," Abbi said.
"They pick me up when I'm trying to swim," Samuel said.
